The installation and start-up work for an intelligent structured cabling system (ISCS) of Sberbank’s Skolkovo Data Processing Centre (DPC), the infrastructure of four out of five modules of the DPC, have been completed. The first module was put into operation on 18 December 2017.
For the last five months, major improvements were made to the DPC. The largest intelligent structured cabling system in Russia was installed and put into operation. It has allowed the DPC to achieve an unprecedented level of the reliability and provide an easy transition to the next generation of computer systems of the future that will function with speeds of up to 400 GB per second.
The goal of the DPC is storing, processing and transmitting massive amounts of information. An advanced system to maintain a regular temperature and humidity, high speed internet access, as well as equipment to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply, are needed to provide for the work of such a centre. Having put the new DPC into operation, Sberbank is increasing its IT system reliability.
The new DPC is the most advanced in the world in many respects. It was designed and installed in such a way to provide for fast transfer to the next generations of computer systems.
